Spring Summer Cruise 2014 ❹❹

Sheepcote Bridge BCN to Hawne Basin

Overnight weather Cool with light rain.

Morning: After a late breakfast we set off at a steady cruise. We stopped for lunch on the approach to Netherton Tunnel (3027 yards). Not much in the way of other craft moving today.

Afternoon: Gosty Hill tunnel was the third tunnel of the day (500 yards) Passed through on tickover as it is a very narrow channel.  Had to wait for a short while to get a berth allocated. Its a tight fit at Hawne, but soon we were moored up and ready for Friday evening social in the club house.

Evening: A good evening spent in good company.
